Lazy Day Salad Recipe

This recipe goes back…way back and, along with Aunt Hazel’s Layered Potatoes Recipe, it always meant “holiday!”

Today, I make it for more than just special occasions. It’s a fun, easy side and a great match for anyone with a sweet tooth (what are you looking at me, for?).

Lazy Day Salad is written on an 80′s style recipe card in my mother’s hand. Judging from the spatters–it’s obviously been part of the family for a very long time!
